The fact that you don't consider that to be a penalty gives me some 
insight into the reasoning process behind your proposal.

It also seems to have escaped you that there are elements to logging a 
QSO that go beyond the exchange of information.  The guy on the other 
end could have copied my callsign perfectly ... even sent it back to me 
with his report ... and still log it incorrectly without me having the 
slightest opportunity to do anything about it.
